You should flip this for the number of rainy days. The amount of rain is secondary to the number of days with rain.

Portland, Olympia, Seattle, Vancouver, Eureka, etc.

It's the grey and damp, not the episodic showers that affect locational choice wrt rain. I moved from Seattle area because there were too many rainy days. I doubt you see emigrants from Baton Rouge saying that.

This didn't help me at all. I'm doing a project on canada and I type into google 'annual rainfall of canada 2006' and it comes up with THIS?!?!?!? I'm sorry but this is not the annual rainfall on canada. I have been looking for an HOUR for the annual rainfall of canada, so I guess you could say I'm just a LITTLE frustrated!!!
